This is a delicious summertime salad. Make this a day before you plan to serve it, to allow the flavours to blend.

Serves 8-10


  • 6 cups cooked and cooled whole wheat pasta (or any whole-grain pasta)
  • 1 cup tofu mayonnaise / cashew mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • Unrefined salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp chopped fresh dill
  • ½ cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • ¼ cup shredded carrots


Prepare dressing by mixing mayonnaise with mustard, salt and pepper. Keep aside. In a large mixing bowl, place the pasta, vegetables and herbs and toss to combine. Gently toss the dressing with the salad. Refrigerate for two hours or overnight.  Serve.
